Supplier's Guide for Custom Quote
If you’re out to win new business and build long term relationships with print buyers then you’re definitely at the right place. At Buy Sell Print you can submit as many print quotes and deals as you like. Here's how to get going:
FIND YOUR NEXT PRINT JOB
Browse through all the jobs listed on the site by selecting ‘Place Bid’ from the top of any page. You are by no means limited to bidding on jobs from within your region as all doors are wide open.
UNDERSTAND THE REQUIREMENTS
Read the job description carefully. Make sure you understand details about shipping and payment options. Do not make assumptions about details that aren't included in the description. When in doubt contact the buyer using the ‘Contact’ option.
CHECK OUT WHO YOU’RE DEALING WITH
Know a buyer’s reputation by looking at their feedback rating and read notes left by other suppliers they have done business with in the past.
READ THE SMALL PRINT
Check if the buyer has put down any terms & conditions for suppliers bidding on the job. This is done to make sure that the whole process is clean and transparent for both the buyer and supplier.
SUBMIT YOUR QUOTE
Do your calculations and quote accordingly as you won’t be the only one bidding against jobs so bid smartly and make sure you have gone through the requirements thoroughly. Remember, the lowest bids won’t necessarily win jobs - other factors such as delivery time & feedback weigh in as well when buyers award jobs.

BUT CONSIDER YOUR OPTIONS
Make every bid a serious one. Don't bid on multiple jobs posted by different buyers if you only have the time for one. You could be the winning bidder in more than one listing and that could lead to negative feedback from the buyer if demand is not met due to any sort of misunderstanding. You may also want to avoid entering ridiculously high bids as that would put most buyers off. Give them an incentive to pick you as their supplier. Leave notes alongside your bid and perhaps offer a little extra to get the buyers attention. It really is simple! The more you bid on jobs, the higher your chances are of winning.
WHEN IT'S TIMES TO GET PAID
After you’ve won a job, allow up to 48 hours before requesting payment from the buyer. If the buyer fails to make payment, notify us through support.
